FAQs

How is the Recovery College course content developed?

All courses delivered by the Recovery College are co-designed, co-reviewed and co-delivered by both someone with lived experience of the subject matter (a Peer Trainer) and someone with experience by training, with a view that courses developed in this way bring together different perspectives and expertise.

What is a Peer Trainer?

Peer Trainers, Peer Support and Peer Learning Mentors use their lived experience to share their insight into self-management and what keeps them well. Peer Trainers work alongside Help for Heroes’ Trainers to bring together lived and professional expertise and personal experience.

How much do courses cost?

Our online self-help guides are free and accessible to all.

Once we are able to deliver our full Recovery College courses face-to-face and virtually, they will be free for anyone who is eligible for Help for Heroes’ support.

Do I have to take any tests?

No. We want to inspire you to realise your potential and make the most of opportunities. All courses are educational but are not academic. 

 

How do I sign up?

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are running a limited course delivery via Microsoft Teams. This is done by Case Manager referral only. If you feel accessing courses virtually would be of benefit to you, please fill in our Get Support form.

We hope to increase our delivery of courses in the near future and will be in touch once that happens. In the meantime, ten of our modules can be self-accessed on our website here and completed at your own pace.
